    Treadmill for now

    That is excellent! I just replaced an old one I had. This one is a Pro Form. A little fancier than the last one. Same principle... it has a belt that goes round and ya walk on it lol

    What shoes do you wear?

    I had been walking pretty regularly for a couple months. Treadmill and weather permitting outside during lunch. Once I started c25k I realized good shoes were a necessity. I went to a local store that specializes in running shoes. I have quite a few friends who are runners and they all said go see the guys at “Second Sole”. First thing they had me do was walk barefoot. He measured me for size and brought out a half dozen boxes of shoes. I tried them on and tested some out on a treadmill in the store. I have a good arch, so my shoes are “neutral”. I bought a pair of Brooks Ghost 11. I tried on all kinds of different brands but these were amazing! I had no idea what a huge difference a real pair if running shoes would make. I went in with the notion of probably paying a hundred or more. These were $116 and worth every penny! Hope this helps!

    Play list ideas

    Anyone have a playlist they wanna share? I listen to albums and such but need some fresh ideas for mixes. One of my favorite training albums is Linkin Park's Meteora...

    Training for 5K this summer.

    "Running a 5K" is on my goal list for 2019 as well! I walked a 5K last year on Thanksgiving Day and it was a lot of fun. My average mile was 19:01 so that is my benchmark. I signed up for one on St. Patrick's Day to see how I am progressing. I'm on week 2 of C25K. I repeated week 1 on purpose. So far so good. The weather here is not conducive to running so until it warms up and thaws out I'm using a treadmill.

    Is it possible to dial down the intensity of C25K?

    I repeated week 1 as well. I wanted to be certain I was settled in with that before moving on. One thing all of my "runner" friends have said about when they first start was it takes time... they all said repeating weeks was not a problem at all. As long as you are working it will come. I would like some advice for a new runner. My calf muscles get pretty tight. Any suggestions for a good warm up/stretching routine?

    How did it go? I did Week 2 Day 2 today. I felt pretty good but I need some help with stretching. My calves get very tight...

    Excellent! I restarted week one just to give myself a real chance at succeeding. Tomorrow I’ll be on Week 2 Day 1 Keep me posted on your progress!

    Treadmill for now

    Hello! Just getting going with the app. Right now the weather here isn't fit for running so I am on the treadmill. I purposely restarted week one. Trying to make sure I am adapted before I move to the next week. This is all very new to me but I am determined to succeed!
